Abandoning No Man's Land

Shrill in New Orleans:
I'm not sure it was ever the intention of this administration to really help," said [Louisiana Sen. Mary L. Landrieu]. "I would say that really it's a pattern of this administration to promise a lot and deliver very little — to pretend like you care, but when it comes down to really putting your money where your mouth is, it doesn't happen."

...."I'm ready to start a revolution," said former Rep. Bob Livingston (R-La.). "This is an absolute outrage. Here we are in Month 4 of a terrible, terrible tragedy, and other than hotel rooms and meals-ready-to-eat and some reconstruction, we haven't gotten squat."
Damn straight.

It's not that you can't trust government to help you out, it's that you can't trust the government in power. The solution is to change that government.
